THE 2020

HUMANS TO MARS SUMMIT

The Humans to Mars Summit (H2M) is the largest annual conference in the world focused on the achievable and sustainable human exploration of Mars.

H2M features experts and luminaries from relevant and diverse fields, including senior NASA, industry, and policy figures, as well as representatives from the entertainment, technology, and innovation industries, STEM education professionals, and members of the general public.

Through consensus building in the space community and inspiring the general public, the goal of H2M is to advance the prospects for the human exploration of Mars in the early to mid-2030s.

Are missions to the Moon by 2024 and Mars by 2033 achievable?
How will the 2020 Mars Rover advance the goal of getting humans to Mars?
If we find life on Mars, what next?
These are just a few of the questions that will be explored at the 2020 Humans to Mars Summit that is taking place on May 12-14, 2020 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C. Register today for H2M 2020, the largest annual conference in the world dedicated to the goal of a sustainable human presence on Mars starting no later than the early 2030s.
"Critical decisions need to be made now to enable a return to the Moon by the mid-2020s and human missions to the surface of Mars by 2033," stated Explore Mars CEO Chris Carberry. "H2M 2020 is well timed to directly engage on may of the most critical issues and decisions in the space exploration community.”
